Variety Attribution O-106/O-106a: Obverse-Date is 9 1/4 mm. with broad 8 and second 1 low. three bars from stripes of shield are boldly clash marked at ear on all specimens seen. Numerous other clash marks are common to this obverse. The die has been lapped before the o-105a state. Now it has been further re-lapped. The mouth is well open and forecurl stands away from headband. A phenomina that often came about with deterioration of the die. A second group of multiple clash marks have developed, but different from the ones on the O-105. Some of the field has a mottled look, there are multiple letters under bust and additional bars at the ear.

O-106: Reverse- 50 C. is 2 1/2mm. and low. Arrow to A is 3/4 mm. Center dot between crossbars 4 and 5. Left sides of T-I are in line.
O-106a: Severe die cracks. A break from rim near left wing tip divides into two main branches, the lower break crosses leaves, top of 50 C. and arrowheads to edge near middle arrowhead. A small branch from top of C. crosses arrow points to edge above C. the other main branch crosses shield, right wing and R to edge. Still another from base of R in AMERICA to top of right wing curves under scroll.
